In his first fight in just under a year, Grant pounded out a unanimous eight-round decision over Detroit's always dangerous Demetrice King by three identical judges' scores of 79-73.
Promising he was fighting with a renewed confidence from the expert tutelage of new trainer Eddie Mustapha Muhammad and career guidance of promoter Nick Garone of X-Cell Worldwide, the 35-year-old Grant imposed his will on his younger opponent. "In hindsight we really picked the right guy. King made him work hard, but Michael looked good and handled him well," Garone revealed post-fight. "King, was on a five-fight knockout streak over tough guys like (then 12-0, 12 KOs) Bermane Stiverne and the Canadian Champion, Raymond Olubuwale but Michael stayed focused and controlled the action."
Garone, who acknowledges that time is of the essence if his fighter is ever to reach his enormous potential, says he will look to keep Grant extremely active in the coming months, with an eye on securing a big fight or title opportunity in the near future.
